The story begins in present time. Tracks 1 tells the story of James, a solipsist who spends the last day of pre-apocalyptic Earth with his partner, Tallulah, at an end-of-the-world dinner party, recounting a history of human folly and exploring the complexities of his own mind until nuclear flames engulf much of the planet.


You've got your head wrapped up
in the last book that you wrote
(You don't know, you don't know)
What to do
Hallelujah, there's wine in the living room
Say hello to your mother for me
(There's salt on the ground
There's blood in the dinner plates), come on
It's fine with me
you always have been something
I could never be
But I will be there
I will see (the earth
fall from its axis)
I will hold you
We will sing,
("Thou father, you are home")
Words we spoke at dinner parties
ringing in my ears
It's so hard to believe
the way we wasted our disease
(But I will..
I will..)
I will hold you close
I will love your ghost
I will not be saved


from Time Travelers' Continent, track released March 12, 2017
